The conference organizers have today (July 15, 2009) decided to move the event to a smaller venue,
Spektri Business Park . The location of Spektri is only a few kilometres from the original venue, so logistics will be as easy as before.
The reason for the change is the low number of attendees who have registered thus far – about 60. This is about 30% of expected. It is probable that the biggest factor contributing to this low turnout is the international economic crisis – budgets are being cut everywhere.
The attendees need not worry, though: Spektri is a high-class venue and all the services are there. We will have a successful event. Buses will be provided to take the attendees from/to Spektri/hotels. Those people registering now need not worry about the location of hotels – suggested hotels are still within easy reach of the venue.
Also, we will have a very nice evening function You will enjoy: a cruise of Helsinki archipelago and a sea-food dinner of local delicacies.
